Human Rights Day: Bhan calls for united efforts to establish peace, promote HR universalism

NEW DELHI: Senior Advocate and Human Rights Defender Ashok Bhan on Sunday said that all sections of society in the Country, including Kashmiris, collectively deserves respect to human rights doctrine and strive for end of violence.

He was delivering a guest lecture to the law students of Delhi Law School as part of the celebration of Human Rights Day.

“The respect for human rights of all the sections of the society is Sine Qua Non for enforcement of Constitutionalism, justice, democracy, development and for winning the hearts of the people,” said Bhan.

Bhan said in South Asia the human Rights violation at the hands of terrorists is galore.

“It is being encouraged by a nation state that pursues terrorism as an instrument of its national and Foreign policy and brazenly provides all the overt and covert support by way of arms, funding, strategic and other logistic support including Drone cover ups to terrorists indulging in their terror activities on the soil of India especially in the Jammu & Kashmir UT,” he added.

While referring to Kashmir Pandits, Bhan said a native population of seven hundred thousand has been exiled by using the tactics of one targeted killing and scaring a thousand population in densely habituated areas of the Valley.

“The NHRC has held it to as akin to genocide. Let us all the humans globally rise the occasion and condemn the human rights violations in any part of the world and collectively strive towards building peace and harmony  besides ending bigotry, communalism and violence and promote human rights universalism,” he added.

Bhan said the currently drug menace is a huge problem associated with terrorism in Jammu & Kashmir and vulnerable youth are dragged in this dangerous path by handlers of terror modules who are failed and loosing people’s ‘so-called moral support’ because Kashmiris  see them as representatives of doom, death & destruction.

Bhan said Women empowerment is a crucial aspect of fostering gender equality.

“Rights of Children has a special emphasis in current human rights jurisprudence. New challenges such as climate change, cyber-crimes and natural disasters etc. contribute to human rights abuse,” he said.

The wholistic jurisprudence on human rights is required to take corrective measures and recommend to nation states the guidelines to be implemented, he added.
